    And you think you have a good PC??

    I thought i had seen some serious pc's in my time but these take the biscuit!!

    news.bbc.co.uk/1/h…stm

    At the heart of the orange monster is one of the latest Intel i7 quad core chips accelerated, or overclocked, to 3.99Ghz. It has 6GB triple channel DDR of RAM, and alongside that sit three overclocked Nvidia GTX280 graphics cards. It has four terabytes of storage for games, movies and music.

    It has a dual-loop water-cooling system plumbed throughout the case to take away the heat generated by the feverish processor and graphics cards.

    Not quite the same as its not overclocked but the specs are comparable if you add some more disk and extra card!

    But it doesnt have "a dual-loop water-cooling system plumbed throughout the case " :-D

    I love how the beeb have worded this article for technophobes. Shame he couldn't get GTX295s though. LOLZ.

    to be honest, the surroundings which the pc was in didn't really do it much justice.

    It's just a shame he sounds like a trainspotter.....

    Out of date within a year...

    i thought overclockwork orange is quite a clever name.

    Nothing that exceptional, you'd find many other similar machines on any enthusiast forum - I'm not really seeing the point in the BBC doing an article on this one.
